New Brunswick — Canada s Most Enjoyable Province
NEW BRUNSWICK, the largest of the Mari-
time Provinces and the closest of the trio of
eastern provinces of the Dominion of Canada
to the New England States and also to Central Can-
ada, is an unspoiled vacationland of 28,000 square
miles — almost equal to the combined size of the
States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hamp-
shire and Vermont.
To the holiday seeker New Brunswick's great
appeal is its unspoiled freshness and its freedom from
commercial exploitation of its natural attractions.
While the number of vacationists visiting New
Brunswick increases annually as its diversified
recreational attractions become more generally appre-
ciated, exclusive summer resorts are rare, and the
attractions are largely of the simpler kind.
Described by many visitors as Canada's Most
Enjoyable Province, New Brunswick is the most
easily and quickly reached natural playground for
the vacationists of New England and the other
Eastern States, as well as affording the nearest and
most convenient seaside for those from Central
Canada seeking an Atlantic Coast holiday. Bounded
on three sides by salt water, it has an extensive coast
line of more than 600 miles with beautiful sandy
beaches and many fine harbors.
New Brunswick offers everything the visitor in
search of rest, recreation and sport may desire —
entrancing scenery, bracing climate, improved motor-
ing roads, real big game hunting, the finest of bird
shooting, the best of Atlantic silver salmon, trout,
bass and other sport fishing, and seaside lake and
forest resorts where accommodations range from the
simple farmhouse, the homely cabin or lodge on the
shore of a lake or stream or a cottage at the beach
to the large modern hotel with golf, tennis, riding
A Sportsman's Paradise
There are more than 12,000,000 acres of woodland
in which moose, deer and bear abound and game
birds and fur-bearing animals are plentiful. Although
one of the first sections of the continent of North
America inhabited by the white man, New Bruns-
wick is, literally speaking, a vast game preserve today
and it has attractions for the nature lover and the
devotee of outdoor life that are nowhere as accessible
to the sportsman as here.
New Brunswick's 12,000,000 acres of woodland, its hundreds
of rivers, lakes and streams teeming with Atlantic silver salmon,
trout, land-locked salmon, bass and other game fish are open to
the canoeist, camera-hunter and camper. Organized camps for
boys, girls and adults are located at a number of points, and
almost every town has its Tourist Camp. A large and efficient
corps of registered and licensed guides place their services at the
disposal of visiting sportsmen; they are expert woodsmen and
canoemen. as well as good companions. Accommodations for
hunting and fishing parties are provided by the guides, or the
visiting sportsman can make his headquarters at a conveniently
located hotel, inn or farmhouse and motor, canoe or hike to
where he wants to fish or hunt. There is a complete network of
Welcome to New Brunswick
THE Government and the people of the Province of
New Brunswick cordially welcome tourists from the
Sister Provinces, the United States and other coun-
tries and invite them to enjoy the recreational opportunit-
ies of this unspoiled vacationland.
This booklet has been designed to cover some of the
questions which usually confront the tourist. More
detailed information is contained in other publications,
which are obtainable upon application, and special infor-
mation will be gladly furnished those who desire it.
This Bureau is the chief of a network of Tourist Infor-
mation Bureaux located at all important centres, thus
embracing the entire province.
The services of this Bureau are yours for the asking.
We welcome the opportunity of assisting you.

hotels, inns, boarding houses and other suitable accommodations
spread all over the province along the railways and the most
travelled motoring roads.
In general the contour of New Brunswick is rolling, becoming
more rugged in the northern part where peaks the highest
of which is Mount Carleton -rise to a height of 2.700 feet.
The country is watered by numerous rivers, and while there
are hundreds of lakes, none are of large size, the largest inland
body of water in New Brunswick being Grand Lake, off the
Saint John River somewhat less than fifty miles from its mouth.
The climate is tempered by the adjacent ocean waters and the
summers, while warm and bright, are remarkably free from
prolonged dry spells and from hot nights.
Easily and Quickly Reached
New Brunswick is easily and quickly reached either by auto-
mobile, train or steamer. Excellent motor roads enter the
province at many points along the Maine and Quebec borders
where this province's main trunk highways connect with the
most popular traffic carriers in the East. Fast, luxuriously
appointed through trains, such as The Gull, which leaves Boston
each night at 10.40, have made New Frunswick just overnight
from Boston or Montreal, and a few extra hours from New York
or Toronto and other centres. Comfortably equipped steamers
are available for those who prefer the sea trip to Saint John,
while excellent motor roads bring the visitor into New Bruns-
wick by scenic routes and cover all the developed sections of
The highway system of New Brunswick includes I 1,600 miles
of improved roads of which 1,400 miles are main trunk roads
and the rem tinder secondary and by-roads, which serve as
feeders. Tl is extensive system makes it possible to reach by
motor every section of the province except that which is still an
undisturbed forest and New Brunswick is pIso well served by
the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways.

ST. STEPHEN is the southern gateway
to New Brunswick and the Maritime
Provinces. United States Atlantic High-
way No. 1 , which extends from Florida right
up the coast to and across the State of Maine,
ends at Calais; across the Internationa
Bridge, which spans the St. Croix River, No. 1
Highway markers are in evidence — but
they designate New Brunswick No. 1 High-
way, the numbering system thus being kept
intact through to the City of Saint John,
where No. 1 Highway converges with the
Trans-Canada Highway No. 2, which number
is carried through to Nova Scotia and on to
More than 10,000 tourists' automobiles
entered New Brunswick via the Calais-St.
Stephen International Bridge last season,
securing permits from Canadian Customs
officers stationed at the end of the inter-
national bridge for extended stays for touring
in this and the other eastern provinces of
Canada. Once again in 1928 St. Stephen
was the most largely patronized port of
entry for tourists entering the Maritime
Provinces. To properly serve the large
number of visiting motorists entering New
Brunswick at St. Stephen the New Bruns-
wick Government Bureau of Information and
Tourist Travel operates a Free Official Tour-
ists' Information Bureau adjoining the Can-
adian Customs House and Immigration
Office, where highway maps, official literature and all
kinds of touring information will be found available
free and without charge of any kind.
Some tourists make the mistake of hurrying through
St. Stephen and away. There is much to see at St.
Stephen and a great deal to entertain and interest
tourist visitors. St. Stephen has good hotels, it has
some outstanding industries, including one of Canada's
leading confectionery manufacturing plants, it has
imposing public buildings and there are good fishing
and hunting territories nearby.
St. Stephen and Calais are at the head of navigation
on the St. Croix River. A few miles down the river is
what is declared to be the best natural harbor In
America; and perhaps, with two or three exceptions
the best in the world, for it is six miles in width and
twice that distance in length. Sheltered and safe and
easy of access, it could accommodate the entire navies
of Great Britain and the United States.
Nearby is historical Dochet's Island, where Cham-
plain and his adventurers spent a disastrous winter
more than three hundred years ago

'HE Islands of Passa-
maquoddy Bay are a-
mong New Brunswick's
potential tourist attractions.
The three larger islands of the
group are Grand Manan,
Deer Island and Campobello.
Grand Manan does not
properly belong to this group
as it lies out beyond the con-
fines of Passamaquoddy Bay.
Its nearest point to the main-
land is the State of Maine,
f .. . and its earliest settlers were
Loyalists from that State.
It has always been and is today a favorite hunting place of the
Passamaquoddy Indians as Porpoise and Seal are very plentiful, as are
Wild Ducks and Geese. It is also a favorite nesting place for Sea Gulls,
and fishermen and others reap a rich harvest gathering eggs from the
nests. It is becoming more and more popular each year as a vacation
spot. Its deep sea fishing, its rugged coast and its bathing and boating
make it an ideal spot in which to spend the summer

is the home of the Sardine, and is surrounded by numerous small

islands. Among the attrac-
tions are the great Whirl-
pools, off Deer Island Point.
This Island is noted for its
rugged beauty and is a won-
derful fishing place and a fav-
orite haunt of the followers
Campobello, the most beau-
tiful and historic of all the
Islands, appeals to all the
senses. Nowhere else can be
found scenery more superb
than the rockbound shores of
Campobello which alternate for thirty miles with quaint coves, clean, codI beaches
gleaming between overhanging crags, weather worn and mystic with folk lore and legend;
ideal little firths where the sea gets in a quiet game of pool to the infinite rattle of pebbles.
Inland are large undulating plateaus of dense birch and fir forests skirteo. by idyllic
glades, all intersected with sparkling streams filled with trout. There is no more
beautiful panorama on this continent than is opened up about a mile from the summer
house of the Hon. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Governor of New York. Standing on the
brow of a hill there opens up a vista of Lake Glensevern, a fresh water lake, just beyond
which is a beautiful sandy beach, five miles in length, and beyond that the great Bay
of Fundy — a panorama beyond description.
Campobello is known as the one spot on the North American continent immune
from mosquitoes, black flies, humidity and hay fever.

In proportion to its size and population it contains more
magnificent summer homes and attracts more prominent
people than any resort in Canada.
The Algonquin Hotel, one of the finest of the Canadian
Pacific's chain, is one of the magnets attracting visitors to St.
Andrews. There is also Kennedy's Hotel and other well con-
ducted and comfortable inns and boarding houses so that anybody's require-
ments can be well met. Every comfort, every sport — tennis, riding, bowling-
on-the-green. bowling alleys, sea-bathing, yachting, sea-fishing, as well as
^rook and lake fishing and hunting in season, may be enjoyed from St. Andrews.
Men who take their golf seriously come and stay all summer for Scotland
.iasn't the only St. Andrews famous for golf. Cool sea air, even in midsum-
mer, dew-moist greens, firm and springy all summer long; and tv>o
courses — a beginner's none and a championship eighteen- — both with
rolling fairways, the pine-fringed rough and the hill-and-island holes that
make every round a new test of skill.
The Dominion Biological Experimental Station, Minister's Island, the
ancient Blockhouse, the Auld Kirk with its quaint pulpit and the Court House
arc points of scientific and historic attraction while annually the Charlotte
County Folk Lore Carnival features a period of interest in the development
of the Cottage Craft of the Province which was instituted at St. Andrews.
St. George and Lake Utopia
ALONG the Bay of Fundy shore as No. 1 Atlantic Highway carries the tourist
from St. Andrews-by-the-Sea towards Saint John there is no more entrancing
spot than St. George, a happily located, prosperous town at the mouth of the
L Right in the centre of the town — five miles from the sea — the waters of the
IVlagaguadavic tumble over a rocky eminence and rush down a narrow gorge, making
a picture of rugged beauty that arrests the attention of visitors and furnishes power
to drive the prospering industries of this up-to-date little town.
Scarcely beyond the limits of the town is Lake Utopia, one of the prettiest spots
in this or any other country and one of two lakes on this continent whose outlet is also
its inlet. 1 his phenomenon forms a storage for the surplus waters of the river, with
which it is connected by a natural canal, during the freshet season. Lake Utopia is
famous for its trout, which are unusually large, clean and gamey and possess a flavor
epicures pronounce the best.
There are community bungalow camps at St. Ceorge, Muskequagum Park and on Lake Utopia,
as well as motor camping sites, and with Lake McDougall, as well as other lakes and streams there is
the best of fishing and the adjacent forest is alive with moose and other big game, this territory extending
back to the boundaries of the Lepreau Game Refuge.
between bt. George and Sainnt John one passes the wonderful beach at New River; Pocologan
Stream, New River, and Lepreau River, all good trout fishing waters; the Hydro development at
Musquash, Spruce Lake, the source of West Saint John water supply, and the road to Lorneville. that
quaint hshing village on the coast, which resembles an old world village, perhaps somewhere in Prance.
'1 he visitor should note the weir hshing all along the Bay of Fundy coast at Black's Harbour, Beaver
Harbour, Mace's Bay, Dipper Harbour, Chance Harbour.
Saint John — Loyalist City
SAINT JOHN, the commercial metropolis of New
Brunswick and one of Canada's Atlantic winterports,
was founded by that intrepid body of Loyalists who
landed there in 1 783.
Parrtown was the name those three thousand Loyalists,
who came in twenty ships, gave their new home, to honor
Governor Parr; but in 1785 the name was changed to
Saint John and it became the oldest incorporated city
in British North America.
Many years before Champlajn had discovered the great river Saint
John, at the mouth of which the city of Saint John is situated; that
was on Saint John the Baptist Day, June 24th, 1604, and he gave the
river the name it has ever since retained. Since then Saint John's
history has been full of romantic incidents and half the charm of this
Loyalist City will be lost to the visitor who does not revive its romantic
historical background. Saint John is naturally of great interest to
people from inland points. The sea is at her feet and wherever you
go you look out upon the broad expanses of the Bay of Fundy. Its
water front is every year becoming more and more a picture of modern
port development. On the Courtenay Bay side of the harbor there
is now in operation what is said to be the largest dry dock in the world.
The Reversing Falls, at the mouth of the Saint John River, con-
stitutes one of Saint John's major tourist attractions. In order to fully
appreciate this phenomenon, two visits - one at high tide and one at
low — should be made to the 450-foot gorge through which the waters
of the river must pass to reach the harbor. When the tide is out,
occas IO ning a drop of 26 feet, an incredible volume of water rushes
down, plunging, roaring through the gorge and leaving a confusion
of eddies and whirlpools in its wake. But six hours later Fundy's Tide
thrusts back the advance of the river — thrusts and pushes and
triumphs, squeezing in between these tortured rocks, and. for a distance,
actually running '*uphill."
There are many other points of interest in and about Saint John.
These are more fully dealt with in publications of the Saint John
Tourist Association, No. 44 King Square. Saint John, where a modern,
up-to-date Tourist Information Bureau is located under capable
~ irgest Dr,vW-)0CK, in
The Old Spar-Mafcgr b1T"6ay of Fundy Coast.
THE diversification of scenery and
recreational attractions New Bruns-
wick offers visitors is well exemplified
by the territory included in the illustrations
presented on this page. They cover the
territory immediately east and south of the
city of Saint John. There is the territory
along the Eay of Fundy coast at St. Martins,
a beautiful seascape and landscape of notable
beauty, then there is also the marvellously
attractive Kennebecasis valley, which leads
through Rothesay and on to Hampton and
then through Sussex, en route via Salisbury,
to Moncton, taking you through a country
entirely different yet as magnificent and fresh
in views of hills and valleys as you have seen.
One of the two golf courses nearby Saint
John overlooks the beautiful Kennebecasis
river — the Riverside Club. It is only a
few miles from the city and is an excellent
course; the scenery is that of high purple
hills and glistening stretches of river. Rothe-
say, a charming summer colony, is situated
on the shores of the Kennebecasis, nine miles
from Saint John; all along the Kennebecasis
are summer colonies. There are many loca-
tions still untaken which would make delight-
ful situations for summer homes.
Rothesay is the home of Major-General
the Hon. Hugh H. McLean, K. C, V. D.,
LL. D., Lieutenant-Governor of New Bruns-
wick, and His Honor's beautiful home and
the entrancing grounds of The Grove, now
Government House, constitute one of the
show places of Rothesay.
Such scenes as that of the old spar-maker
at work at St. Martins fascinate visitors
who take some of the delightful motor drives
from Saint John along the Bay of Fundy
coast. A glimpse of the Bay at almost any
point, with its cooling tide always on the
move, brings never ending pleasure to visitors
who watch the breaking waves on the more
rugged parts of the coast-line.
Long sandy beaches offer hard-to-resist
opportunities for bathing and visitors who
have not tried deep sea fishing have yet to
enjoy a sport which offers many thrills.
Along the Bay of Fundy coast are inns,
cabins, lodges and farm-houses offering com-
fortable accommodations for those who can
stay to enjoy the vacationing attractions.
SUSSEX, the shire town of Kings County, is the
centre cf a rich agricultural country, largely
given to dairying. Prcsperity and comfort are
in evidence on all sides as one motors along the
Trar.s-Canada Highway enroute from Saint John
to Mcncton — Sussex is also blessed with rare scenic
beauties as well as other tourist attractions which
make it a popular centre.

At Apch-vqui and other locations in the Sussex
district there are mineral springs near the roadside.
Suscex is the location of New Brunswick's chief
IVilitary Camp grounds and annually the various
militia units gather at Sussex for their training camps.
Tl e Provi'Tciil Rifle Ranges are also located there and the pro-
vincial and occasionally the Maritimes championship matches
ere shot there. The Sussex Golf Club's course adjoins the
miliary crmp grounds, too.
Suscex has delightful accommodations for tourists, including
up-to-dite over-night cabins and a well maintained auto cam)
rnd many commodious homes are thrown open to visitors; there
aie also, of course, good hotel accommodations.
In the vicinity of Sussex are a number of silver fox farms and
the biggest ranch of this kind in the British Empire is further
along en route to M one ton — at Salisbury.
Albert County s Grandeur
A \ I ITH rugged grandeur of rock-girt shor e
y y and mountain peak and pastoral beauty
of broad and verdant meadow with the
shimmering waters of the Bay of Fundy beyond,
Albert County offers a charm of scenery which
gives it front rank in diversified tourist attrac-
tions in this or any other province.
Added to the beauty of scenery k the visitor to
Albert County also gets what to city dwellers is
priceless — the exhilarating salt-laden breezes
that blow in from Fundy and make a temperature
which, even with the midsummer sun, is almost
perfect. For the enjoyment of these natural
attractions Albert County offers all the trans-
portation facilities and suitable accommodations
that visitors may cesiie.
Eranching off from Trans-Canada Highway
at Penobsquis and following No. 14 New Brunt-
wick Highway through Albert County via Alma
to Moncton, one motors through a territory
which offers gocd fishing in season and later
seme of the best moose hunting on the North
American continent. At Alma, where you first
reach the Bay of Fundy coast, you are nearby
the location of Camp Ho-Dan-Age, a boys' camp
which has been established at Point Wolfe for
some years, and near Elgin is Camp Hermit
Thrush for girls. This drive through Albert,
Riverside, Hopewell Hill and up Shepody Bay
has many attractions, but perhaps the chief is
the Rocks at Hopewell Cape at the confluence
of the Petitcodiac and Memramcook rivers.
The Rocks are only half a mile from the main
highway at Hopewell Cape and a good auto
road takes visitors right to the shore. Fantastic
columns and caves ■ — all nature's handiwork —
astonish strangers with their grandeur. Fifty
feet above the base of the rocks there is a beauti-
ful picnic ground, surrounded by beeches and
ever-greens, equipped with a pavilion and restau-
rant to cater to the tourists' needs.
Along the Albert County coasts are many
beautiful beaches suitable for bathing while
elsewhere majestic hills look down on rocky
gorges where the waters rush and whirl. In
addition to the railways there is a bus service
which furnishes a convenient means of trans-
portation from Moncton down the main shore
road through scenery of entrancing beauty.
More moose have been taken out of Albert
County by hunters the past few years than from
any similar area in this Province or elsewhere
in Canada and some excellent lodges, cabins
and other equipment for hunting and fishing
parties have been provided by the guides of the
Moncton- -The Railway City
ONCTON is considered by many people who know the Maritimes as possessing
the highest average prosperity of any place in Eastern Canada. It is the
.second city of size and commercial importance in New Brunswick and is the
transportation centre of the Maritime Provinces. It is essentially a railway city
where the Canadian National Railways have concentrated their Atlantic Regional
Headquarters and owing to its strategical position it is called "The Hub of the Mari-
Moncton was named in honor of Honorable Robert Monckton., soldier and states-
man, who received his commission in the British Army at 15, and when but 25 was
elected a member of the British Parliament. In 1752 he was sent to Nova Scotia
and later became Lieutenant-Governor of that province. Soldiers, under his com-
mand, began the British occupation of Saint John in 1758. He was Commandant
cf the British forces at Fort Beausejour and second in command under General Wolfe
at the siege of Quebec.
The population of Moncton is about 21,000 and, in addition to being an important
manufacturing and distributing centre, it is surrounded b. an excellent farming
country and a territory rich in mineral resources scarcely touched, including oil and
The "Bore" in the Petitcodiac River at Moncton is a most curious phenomenon,
which attracts attention of many tourists. One sees in the distance a silver-crested
wave creeping over the dark brown flats, and soon at our feet an irresistible and turbu-
lent wall of water from three to six feet in height sweeping past, churning up the mud
and stones in its fury. The Bore is caused by the inrushing tides of the Bay of Fundy,
which rise to a height of fifty-six feet, forcing a great volume of water through the
comparatively narrow neck of the Petitcodiac River. The Riverdale Golf Club,
which has a nine-holes course, is convenient to the city.
Moncton has one of the finest motor camping grounds in New Brunswick, shower
baths, laundry facilities and all other conveniences. It is near the western boundary
of the city.

Bathing Beach at Point -du Chene.
WESTMORLAND County's east
coast, extending to where Cap
Tormentine reaches out to with
in nine miles of Prince Edward Island, is
an ideal vacationland as Nature made ii
Superb scenery, invigorating atmo*
phere, unsurpassed facilities for salt water
bathing, swimming, boating and nshir
and the absence of dangerous surf and
treacherous undertow form a combination
of attractions which bring many visitors
to the Northumberland Strait coastal
towns, villages and resorts.
Among the most popular districts is
Shediac, with Point du Chene and other
popular nearby beaches, while following
the coast around Cape Tormentine arc
Port Elgin, Baie Verte and other attrac-
tive places. Shediac has, however, the
largest summer colony and there and at
Point du Chene will doubtless be extensive
developments for the tourist traffic;
there are no fogs, no humidity, no exces-
sive tides, an abundance of sunshine, with-
out excessive heat, and cool nights.
East of Moncton, en route to Prince
Edward Island or Nova Scotia bv either
the Trans-Canada Highway or by Cana-
dian National Railways, it is a pleasant
journey. At Memramcook the Roman
Catholic University of St. Joseph's Col-
lege, which has been the centre of higher
education for Acadian boys for generations and
from which many of them have passed to success-
ful professional and business careers throughout
Canada, is passed. Here the country levels out
to the famous Marshes of Tantramar, immortal-
ized by Charles G. D. Roberts in one of his poems.
Thus the Maritime Penitentiary buildings, huge
massive stone structures at Dorchester, loom up
alongside 80-square miles of these famous Tan-
tramar Marshes and Sackville also overlooks
these marshlands. Sackville is a typical college
town with the buildings of Mount Allison Uni-
versity rising from a symmetrical hilltop and
dominating the country for miles around. It has
also some notable industries, bright stores and
Sackville Country Club has a 9-holes Golf course.
Far away across the marshes there is a rise from
the broad level of the meadow. This is the site
of the former Fort Beausejour, where the curtain
rolled up first on the final drama of the French and
English struggle for the possession of America.
It has lately been taken over by the Historic Sites
and Monuments Board of Canada as a National
Along the East Coast
THE popularity of the route traversed by Main Trunk Highway No. I 1 along the
East Coast of New Brunswick is bringing back to Kent County the prosperity it
once enjoyed as a rendezvous for tourists.
The Northumberland Strait is protected from the dangers of the North Atlantic by
Prince Edward Island and the coast of Kent County, thus protected from storms and
dangerous surfs, offers many opportunities for visitors from inland cities to enjoy an ideal
vacation at the seaside. Thus the popularity of Buctouche is growing each year and
Richibucto, with its Riverpark Golf Club, is regaining the place it occupied in popular
favor as a watering place before modern means of transportation caused its beauties
and attractions to be neglected.
All along the Kent County coast the scenic splendor of Highway No. 1 I is marvellously
beautiful to visiting motorists. The fishing fleets may be seen running off to the fishing
grounds, the blue waters of Northumberland Strait sparkling in the sunlight. Prince
Edward Island is plainly visible, only twelve to fifteen miles away, and all along the coast
will be found camping sites and picnic grounds with opportunities for enjoying fresh lobsters,
clams and oysters in season. At various locations there are canneries, warehouses and
plants of large corporations which export lobsters and other fisheries products to the Upper
Canadian, American and European markets.
The appeal of the historic attracts many visitors annually to Rexton, a few miles from
Richibucto, the shiretown of Kent County, on Main Trunk Highway No. I 1 , where a
memorial cairn has been erected in honor of the late Rt. Hon. Andrew Bonar Law, who was born there and
who was the first Canadian to become Prime Minister of Great Britain. The Bonar Law homestead and
the Kirk where his father preached are also points of interest at Rexton.
At St. Charles, near Richibucto, there is a melodious and beautiful chime of bells which have been immor-
talized by the late George V. Mclnerney's poem, "The Bells of Aldouane."
At St. Louis de Kent, seven miles from Richibucto, a lovely pastoral village with imposing church and
convent edifices, there is a facsimile of the celebrated shrine of Notre Dame de Lourdes, a perfect reproduc-
tion including the beautiful statuary.
EW territories combine so many
tourist attractions as to be
found on the Miramichi — a
territory which comprises the beautiful valley of
one of the most wonderful rivers of this prov-
ince and which includes the vast expanses as
the river at its mouth widens into the Bay,
which affords opportunities for sport and
ccmmerce that are nowhere excelled on this
Thus we find the Miramichi, famous for its
lumber and its commercial fisheries, equally as
famous as for its angling, big game hunting and
water fowling. Along the Miramichi there are
probably better undeveloped tourist attractions
than can be found anywhere else so accessible.
Bathing, boating, golf, deep sea fishing and
sports of all kinds may be enjoyed and there are
ideal locations for summer homes.
Newcastle, the shire town, and Chatham,
situated within a few miles of one another on
opposite banks of the Miramichi river, are the
principal centres of the Miramichi district and
make good outfitting places for hunting and
iishing parties and are the headquarters for
tourists coming to the Miramichi. Up the
Miramichi, on the Sou'west and the Nor'west
branches, on the Sevogle, the Clearwater, the
Renous and many other tributaries there are
fishing and hunting camps and on the lower
Miramichi there are equally good fishing and
hunting territories on the Bartibog, the Neguac,
Black River, the Tabusintac, the Napan and
other streams, while Miramichi Bay, Wishart's
Point, Neguac, Point Escuminac, Bay du Vin,
and Tabusintac are some of the best locations
for shore birds, there being no better water-
fowling district anywhere on this continent,
according to well qualified experts.
Visitors who want to spend a delightful vaca-
tion can select no better territory than the
Miramichi. There are many delightful auto
drives, the Miramichi Golf Club is conveniently
situated between Chatham and Newcastle and
has a fine course on which \ isitors are invited to
play and there is good steamboat service on the
lower Miramichi river and Miramichi Bay,
while the ferry Frances Ullock provides excellent
service for those who wish to cress the river at

Bathurst and Gloucester
BATHURST, the first town in the Maritime
Provinces to be the scene cf the manufac-
ture of newsprint paper and justly proud
of its accomplishments, combines beauty and
business and recreational advantages with
industrial opportunities in a manner which
makes it doubly interesting to visitors.
Beautifully situated at the head of the Bath-
urst Basin on Bay Chaleur, with its smooth
sand beaches at Youghall and other points that
are unexcelled for bathing, Bathurst is also
adjacent to some of the best big game hunting
and salmon and trout fishing territories in New
Brunswick. Bathurst is the outfitting centre
for parties wishing to whip these rivers, streams
and lakes, or to hunt big game and shore birds
or to enjoy deep sea fishing. Competent guides
and complete outfits may be engaged at Bath,
urst, which is a suitable base for operations as
it has some cf the finest hotels in the Maritime
Provinces and public spirited citizens take a
personal interest in the welfare of visitors.
Many delightful days can be spent by visitors
motoring from Bathurst throughout Gloucester
county. For instance, the motor drive following
Main Trunk Highway No. 1 1 along the eastern
and then the north shore of the Province offers
coastal scenery that is nowhere excelled. Then
again Tetagouche Falls, the Grand Falls on the
Nepisiguit and Nigadoo Falls are all attractive
to visitors, while trips to Caraquet, Pokemouche,
Tracadie, the islands of Miscou and Shippegan
are all entertaining and pleasantly accomplished
over good motoring roads. There are no more
picturesque fishing villages on the Atlantic
coast than many of the beautiful spots in
The history and tradition loving visitor can
find much of interest in Bathurst. Jacques
Cartier visited Bathurst and so did Nicholas
Denys, one time Governor of the Company of
New France for the whole coast of the Gulf of
St. Lawrence to Cape Rosier, and here he built
a fishing station and a strong fort, the founda-
tions of which may still be seen with many
relics that proclaim its martial character.
Before it had grown into a full sized town and
became Bathurst, in honor of the then Colonial
Secretary, Lord Bathurst, the French had
called the place St. Peters.
Bathurst is situated on the main line of
Canadian National Railways and enjoys the
finest of train services which makes the who

The Campbellton Gateway
CAMPBELLTON is the northeastern gateway leading
into New Erunswick from the beautiful Metapedia
Valley, it is the outfitting centre for salmon and trout
fishing parties going to the Restigouche and other equally
famous waters and, located at the head of Bay Lhaleur, it is the
chief centre of a district which affords a diversification of recrea-
tional attractions seldom so effectively combined in one location.
Baie de Chaleur, the name which the French gave it, means
"Bay of Heat," and the temperature of the water is higher in
Bay Chaleur than at any other part of the whole Atlantic coast.
Along its shores are miles of the finest sand beaches — clean,
hard sand where the tides do not leave a ripple-mark, she'tered
by great groves of pine and spruce. At Dalhousie, New Mids,
Charlo, Jacquet River and elsewhere along the Bay Chaleur
coast there are miles of this sand beich. The Restigouche
Country Club, with its nine-holes Golf coarse, overlooks Bay
Chaleur, and at New Mills is located Camp Bonave.ature, where
American and Canadian boys spend the summer in a we.
supervised and thoroughly organized camp. This camp has
been highly successful and the wonder is that there are not
more such institutions established in this territory and that
some of the many ideal locations for large modern bungalow camps and sum-
mer hotels have not long before been taken up and davsloped by private
enterprise. Certainly no other district offers the same attractions to the
sportsman and the tourist so easily accessible to Montreal and other largs
centres of population.

The Edm undsto n Gateway
EDMUNDSTON is the first important community
reached by motor tourists entering New Brunswick from
the Province of Quebec via the Trans-Canada Highway.
It is a busy, hustling manufacturing town, located at the
conflux cf the Saint John and Madawaska river, and the home
of bleached sulphite mills, paper board mills and other manu-
factories of the Fraser Companies, Limited. Across the international
bridge which spans the Saint John River is the town of Madawaska, Maine,
where more mills are located.
Edmundston has good hotels, a fine golf course and is a popular centre
from which fishing and hunting parties go to the lakes and streams of a
territory which is a veritable sportsmen's paradise. Capable guides are
obtainable and good accommodations are available. Edmundston is also
a suitable centre for outfitting for a canoe trip down the Saint John River.
Four railways give Edmundston excellent train services.
St. Leonard, which is the junction point for trains leading to the Resti-
gouche river's famous salmon waters, twenty-five miles down the Saint
John River on the Trans-Canada Highway, No. 2, is another popular over-
night stopping place for parties motoring into New Brunswick from
Quebec. It has particularly good hotel accommodations and is the centre
of a good fishing and hunting territory.

The Woo dstock Gateway
THE Woodstock-Houlton gateway has become one of the most
popular routes for tourist motor traffic entering New Bruns-
wick and the other Maritime Provinces from the New Eng-
Traffic via this gateway has grown rapidly the past few years
and large numbers, motoring into New Brunswick through the
State of Maine now enter by one gateway and return by another
thus enjoying a diversification of scenery which the northern and
southern routes offer.
Woodstock is a popular centre from which tourists motor to
many attractive locations for trout fishing and other recreational
activities. It has an especially good hotel and plenty of suitable
accommodations for tourists, including a number of good restaur-
ants, and it is the business centre of one of the finest agricultural
territories in eastern Canada. It has an interesting golf course
imposing public buildings and an up-to-date exhibition plant and
one of the smartest race tracks in the East.
Centreville, Bath, Florenceville and Hartland are so located as
to provide interesting and attractive motor drives from Woodstock.
At Hartland is one of the best salmon pools on the Saint John River,
Atlantic silver sea-run fish weighing as much as twenty-six pounds
having been taken by anglers there.

The Rhine of America
NOWHERE in America is there anything so nearly
comparable to the scenic grandeur of the Rhine as
the lower reaches of the Saint John River.
Pictured on this page, as we complete our pictorial tour
